Growing Plants and Community Connections
Tigard’s community garden program is all about growing—growing vegetables, fruits, flowers and community connections. As a Community Garden member you have the exclusive use of one garden plot along with shared responsibility for the common areas.
According to the American Community Gardening Association, “...community gardening improves people’s quality of life by providing a catalyst for neighborhood and community development, stimulating social interaction, encouraging self-reliance, beautifying neighborhoods, producing nutritious food, reducing family food budgets, conserving resources and creating opportunities for recreation, exercise, therapy and education.”
Whatever your reason for gardening, get growing today!
